There are times to stand your ground... and there are times to HIDE.

Skylla will eat you if she can... she has six greedy heads on long serpentine necks that swoop down on passing ships and snatches up the sailors and passengers that weren’t smart enough to HIDE.

She dangles from a cave and uses her twelve feet to pluck dolphins and dogfish from the sea below. Whenever something larger comes along, like sea monsters and sailors, she feeds on them too.

No ship ever passed Skylla without providing her with a six course meal.

This Fun Fact was taken from The Odyssey.
